Cristiano Ronaldo’s sporting future is still not defined, but there is a possibility that he could join the ranks of Saudi Arabia’s Al-Nassr. During the last hours, Marca reported that the Riyadh club is close to closing an agreement with the experienced scorer and his annual contract would be around 200 million euros.
The rumors that linked ‘CR7’ with the aforementioned Saudi sports entity arose a week ago, after learning that the 37-year-old attacker was released: Manchester United decided to break the link that united them, after the footballer’s explosive statements against the managers , technicians and even their colleagues in the institution.
In this sense, Cristiano has the power to negotiate with any team, establishing the most favorable conditions for his interests, and Al-Nassr’s offer would be the most favourable. In principle, according to the aforementioned Spanish outlet, the striker would sign a two-and-a-half-year contract (until June 2025).
And in terms of economics, the former Real Madrid player would pocket approximately 200 million euros per year, a total figure that is added between salary and advertising agreements. The formal proposal has already been sent, but there will still be no resolution, at least until the end of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
Fabrizio Romano indicated that ‘CR7’ is fully focused on what can happen with the Portugal team in the World Cup and will only make a decision after concluding their participation. On the other hand, the journalist also highlighted that, when there is a response, there will be a pending detail to be clarified in Al-Nassr’s offer: image rights.
Let’s remember that it is not the first time that Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a Saudi Arabian club, since in the previous transfer market he was very close to Al Hilal. On that occasion, the team where the Peruvian André Carrillo plays could not close a deal because it was prevented from registering players by the Sports Arbitration Center.
